Sling Media releases SlingPlayer for iPad

Sling Media has released an iPad version of its Slingbox client for iOS devices. SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad allows users to stream TV and other video content to their iPad from select Slingbox devices using a Wi-Fi or 3G connection. Users can view and control video content via the SlingPlayer app and Slingbox from sources such as cable, satellite and IPTV set-top boxes and DVRs, TiVO, Apple TV and even home security cameras. Slingbox Pro-HD users can also stream digital over-the-air broadcasts. SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad follows the release of SlingPlayer for iPhone ($30) earlier this year with a redesigned iPad-native interface including a revamped programming guide and a recent channels feature. Slingbox for iPad is sold separately from the iPhone version and is available from the App Store for $30. The SlingPlayer applications for iOS require a Slingbox Solo or Pro-HD and are not compatible with older Slingbox devices.
